  • Samantha, you swore
    You never turned that trick before
    Keep waiting for a war
    You'll never win
    You'll lose again

    Watch her wrap her legs around this world
    Can't take that gutter from the girl

    Samantha
    You burned me out
    Samantha
    It's over now
    Samantha

    Your war
    Was a lost cause before I came
    Keep praying
    Pray for
    The pretty things you won't get back

    Watch her wrap her legs around this world
    Stab the gutter right out of that girl
    That girl

    Through villages of ether
    My crucifixion comes
    Will you sing my hallelujah?
    Will you tell me when it's done?

    Look in my eyes
    There's nothing there
    Goodbye
    I wanted you out of my whole life
    Goodnight
    And don't try to move

    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid agony
    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid suffering

    People like you fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me

    (Fuck people like you)
    Leave your money by the bed
    (Fuck people like me)
    (Fuck people like you)
    In the gutter where you live
    (Fuck people like me)
    And I throw it all away
    And I throw it in your face
    And if you were on fire
    I would just throw kerosene
    Cause I love so much I hate
    And I hate what you have seen in me

    Samantha

    So you think that you could save him
    And we know that someone died
    Oh, an unkindness of ravens
    And we know that Mary lied
    And through villages of ether
    Oh, my crucifixion comes
    Will you sing my hallelujah?
    Will you tell me when it's done?

    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid agony
    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid suffering

    People like you fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you Writer/s: COURTNEY M. LOVE, LINDA PERRY, MICHAEL BEINHORN, MICKRO LARKIN, PETER THORN, WILLIAM PATRICK CORGAN
